Simple Comics That Perfectly Illustrate The Different Ways Moms and Dads Are Treated in Public

by Elana

Social stereotypes exist whether we like it or not, and parenting is no subject that is excused from this concept. When out and about in the public space moms and dads are treated very differently. It's not a subject tackled head on very often but as a comic series featured on Babble has quickly learned, it's time we start talking about it.

These simple comics break it down a simple matter that has spoken to parents so well it's been shared nearly 50,000 times on social media. Sounds like it's pretty easy to relate to already, doesn't it?

Not sure? Have a look for yourself. If you happen to fall under the category of mom or dad then chances are you'll find yourself knowing exactly what you're looking at and understanding: you are not alone.
